Advice for building a kitchen from scratch?

Tonyjlive | Nov 17, 2006 06:13 PM

My fiance and I bought a house here in Philadelphia and it is a real fixer upper. We are tearing down the current kichen and rebuilding it. The dimensions will be 8 1/2 ft. long by 14 ft. wide so it's not going to be big. In that we have to squeeze all of our applainces and a back door. I was hoping for advice in terms of clever ideas you would change or have used in your own kitchen to save space, make life easier, and any general advice. Not really looking for appliance ideas, I subscribe to consumer reports and recently they produced an issue on applainces which we will use as a guide. The budget isn't huge either. To give an example of something that would be helpful could be the suggestion of lighting under the cabinets. Any ideas, tips or hints would be appreciated. Thanks
